On behalf of the Conroe Noon Lions Club, we would like to say thank you to all those that came out during the Montgomery County Fair and supported all of the exhibitors during the livestock and non-livestock showings. The Montgomery County Fair Association is the largest scholarship program in Montgomery County, providing an estimated $150,000 in scholarships yearly. 

The CNLC has provided the all-volunteer concession stand services at the Fair since the mid-1980’s. Nearly every Lions Club member provides a service during the seven-day event and concession revenues exceeded $50,000. A huge thank you to Fair Concessions Vice President Tracy Irvine and Food Chair Rob Hamilton for successfully coordinating this year’s event. On Wednesday afternoon CNLC held its newest speech contest of junior class students at Conroe High School. It is named in honor of a much beloved club member and past program chair, Pete Brasher. In conjunction with the CHS English teachers’ students as asked to write and deliver a speech based on the five global causes of Lions Clubs International: Hunger, Environment, Diabetes, Vision, and Childhood Cancer. Eight students were selected for the final contest to present their speeches in front of a panel of Lions club members. All the students did an outstanding job, and the top winners were First place Kathryn Quales, Second place Andriana Loaftman, and Third place Arisha Itrat.
